Workers’ Compensation

For many victims of workplace accidents, their injuries are covered under the employer’s workers’ compensation coverage. As an answer to years of unsafe conditions coupled with injustice and inequality, workers’ compensation provides monetary compensation to employees after a workplace injury, regardless of fault or the negligence of the employer. In exchange for the support, the employee gives up their right to take legal action. If you are injured at work, you should be comforted in knowing that a percentage of your lost earnings should be paid as you try to recover. If your claim is disputed, it is important to have effective legal support.

Third-party lawsuits

If a work injury was caused by a negligent third party, it is important to discuss your legal options with an attorney. These lawsuits can involve:

  • Safety equipment
  • Tools
  • Ladders & Scaffolding
  • Machinery
  • Auto defects
  • Landlords

If you have a valid case and need to take legal action against a third party after receiving support from your employer’s workers’ compensation policy, you will most likely need to pay that back. As with any personal injury lawsuit, the plaintiff will need to prove that negligence led to his or her injury. It is important to have an effective attorney that can help meet the burden of proof.
